George Bush Is Using GM to Screw the Environment One Last Time

Big Oil, still in the White House.

I was watching Dana "Pig Missile" Perino on CSPAN this morning, explaining how George Bush is in favor of helping GM.  But he wants to take the $25 billion in loans to automakers from the 2007 Energy Bill and repurpose them, he doesn't want to use funds from the $700 billion Wall Street bailout (which Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have indicated they would like to do).

Congress approved the funds for a Department of Energy program that would help the automakers to develop fuel-efficient vehicles.  

Got that?   George Bush wants to kill the program that would build more fuel-efficient vehicles.

Nobody at the press conference called Perino on it.

Big Oil, still in the White House.
